Humphry Repton(1752-1818) was a famous landscape gardener, Writer, Aspiring architect who In 1800 produced a scheme for the estate of Hatchlands which had been commissioned by its owner, George Holme Sumner. Repton’s plans for Hatchlands included the laying of dressed lawn or pleasure ground around the house interspersed by gravel walks leading to objects of interest and a screen of planting, so that Hatchlands would be “changed from a large red house by the side of a high road, to a Gentleman-like residence in the midst of a park.” The layout of the garden and the park beyond remains much as envisaged by Repton. The “Red Book” for Hatchlands is to be found in the Pierpont Morgan Library in New York.
